Two years ago, Lauren, a deadly assassin known as the "Archangel" fell in love with Kevin, the man she was contracted to kill. The two went into hiding, living in a remote cabin in the woods and living off the grid. But secretly, Mr. Romero and his organization of killers have tracked them down.... and he has a bloody score to settle
